Default Cydectin Question

I'm going to get some Cydectin for my medicine cabinet, and I was curious if anyone knows whether or not you can use it on lactating does and still drink the milk, or if there is a time period that would be good to refrain from drinking their milk when you give it to them??

Also, I was looking on valleyet.com and the only Cydectin I saw was Cydectin Pour On, and Cydectin Oral Sheep Drench. When I clicked on the Cysectin Pour On, it said Cydectin Pour On for Cattle. Is that the right Cydectin to get? I think it is, and know that many things used for cattle are also used for goats unofficially, but it's not cheap stuff, so I just want to be sure. Thanks!

Yes the cattle pour on, 1cc per 22 pounds orally. Keep it in the fridge, copper bolus, keep the molasses out of your grain mix, and it will last even a mid size herd a couple of years. More if you learn to fecal, way to many folks blame everything on worms

Thanks Vicki. As far as I can tell, I have healthy goats, but since I am still figuring out my worming program, and don't have the ability yet to do my own fecals, in the meantime, I heard that Cydectin is the stuff to have on hand that kills worms well. I am a LITTLE concerned from looking at the eyelids that they are a bit paler than they should be. I've used Ivermectin and goat dewormer pellets in the past, but think I should have some Cydectin on hand as well. BTW, how often do you administer the copper bolus, since you mentioned that?

If you only have a few goats Quest horse gel is more cost effective and is the same

Thank Nicole. I do only have three fully grown lactating goats, but if the regular Pour On lasts a few years, I have 5 kids right now as well, so I might just get the pour on and not worry about running low, but I'll look into the amounts. It might be that the horse gel is the ticket. Thanks!

Just be careful using the Quest, it isn't always thoroughly mixed in the tube, and since you're using such a small amount you can get more or less active ingredient than you want. Squeeze out the whole tube into a clean container, mix it well, then measure very carefully, it should be fine.

Question, do your guys' Quest come in a gel, or is it more like a paste? I couldn't really get mine to stir very well, and didn't really see why I would need to, because it was a gel. But, I could see if it was a paste, having it separate or something.

It is a gel. Far more economical than a huge container of pour on. Moderate sized herd means 30 or so Not 3. Quest in the tube will do several does for 12.00. It does not separate unless you let it be exposed to extreme heat. It must be stored below 75 degrees. Press it out into a smaller dosing syringe so you know the cc rather than go by the pounds for a horse which does not translate to goats at all. Really...for 3 does....a tube of Quest is the way to go. Your youngstock will need Valbazen to get the tapes.

Quest dosage....1cc for 100 pounds!~ All the hoopla over the dosage and killing goats with the active ingredient moxidectin is based on the poor research of the goatkeeper. Quest has a huge margin of safety. This chemical targets the nervous system of the parasite which has little in common with the nervous system of a mammal. The toxicity is in the carrier as in the pour on being used orally. Not the active ingredient. You only need the pour on if you have a large number of goats with poor parasite resistance or confinement raised animals that are continuously re-infected.
